Hello all! The OGHS Class of 1997 Reunion Committee met tonight and finalized some decisions: Reunion will be Saturday, September 16. The night before is the homecoming game at the Mac, and there may be an informal gathering there. Reunion activities will include a tour of the “new” school (pending admin arrangements), mass at a location to be announced, and an afternoon/evening gathering at McNally’s. More details will be shared as things fall into place, but please save the date. Please spread the word to all our classmates who may not know. We tried to pick a date that seemed to work for most people. Unfortunately, no date will work for everyone. We hope you can make it!”
